About Me

Carpeing the Diem is the philosophy I use whenever I am making life-changing decisions.  I like to do the opposite of what most sane and normal people would choose to do, because life is all about seizing the day and making the most out of what you’ve got while you’ve got it.

My name is Emily and I am a 26 year old from upstate NY.  If I could, I would hike and do yoga for a living.  This past summer I became an Adirondack 46er before taking a hiatus from cube-life to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail (where I was known as Cinderella).

I like wine, my dog, and watching the Bachelorette (like any other basic white girl my age).  The majority of my days are spent planning my next adventure, and once I’ve done that I start planning the next.  You can usually find me on a mountain, a plane, or Pinterest.
